I've started Websphere on my local box and I can't remember what port the admin app should be on. Any ideas?

Its usually 9060 for http and 9043 for https.

    Be careful if you use RAD or RSA. Both install more than one server, so the ports may differ. Jan 18, 2010 at 15:42

There are several files (two of them look like reliable sources) in your WAS-profile that you can check (I used the paths from my installation, which uses mostly the standard settings):

  1. {WAS-Profile-Path}\logs\AboutThisProfile.txt
  2. {WAS-Profile-Path}\config\cells{cellname}\nodes{cellManagername}\serverindex.xml And look for WC_adminhost_secure or WC_adminhost.

The first one is easier since it is the smaller file. However, the second one is the actual configuration file. If you can't find the files. Search for a file that contains WC_adminhost or WC_adminhost_secure.

  • searching serverindex.xml for WC_adminhost showed the port I needed.

Use netstat to get a list of the open ports; netstat -ltnp will give you listening ports with the process that has them open; it should be obvious where it is from there.
